A central element is Phorms Bilingual School Munich's consistently bilingual approach - English and German are used as equal languages - appropriate to the respective age group - both inside and outside the classroom. This international orientation is reflected in the origins and backgrounds of our teachers and the families of our students. They come from a variety of countries and different cultures, which greatly enriches the school community. Values such as interest in others, understanding, openness and tolerance are put into practice every day on our campus.
In all age groups, we provide the children entrusted to us with the knowledge and skills they need to find their way in a world which offers many fascinating and new things worth discovering every day. Curiosity and the joy of learning are deemed to be our students' most important traits. On this basis, we offer our children from Crèche and Kindergarten via Primary School to Secondary School a demanding and well-structured educational programme providing them with the skills and knowledge that enable them to understand and shape the world.
What counts most for us is to nurture the personality of every single individual. Respect for fellow human beings, integrity as well as the ability and willingness to take responsibility for themselves and others are the essential fundamentals for our students in order to lead a meaningful life and to take an active part in shaping the world. Our main responsibility is to be role models for them and to guide them to this goal.
My kids were very fortunate to have studied at Phorms (Kindergarten, Primary, and Secondary) during the past 7 years.
It is with great sadness for all of us to leave the incredible school community (as we moved to The Netherlands). Phorms has been the perfect school for them, and they have been very happy going to school every day, and have acquired excellent linguistic skills and behavior-social habits. During this world health crisis we were amazed every day by the learning habits they have been acquiring at school, being so motivated to learn and to work on their homework on a daily basis. We admire the teachers and the management for working together with the students to support them, and to prepare and upload all the school material needed.
Was there for 8 years, since the very beginning. I'd say the school peaked around 2012, its been a few years since I was there but from what I remember it was hilarious, classmates were usually close to one another, teachers also for the most part were decent (salute to mr nevin miss banks and fr volkmann who I think are still around). Basic rule of thumb for a kid there is dont become the black sheep of the class and you'll have a great time, if your tongue is silver enough you can talk your way out/into a lot of things... fun times though, weirdly miss the cafeteria and talking my way out of not doing homework :)
